The Run for the Young is part of the local Runner of the Year race series. Last year, more than 500 people participated.

The Run for the Young is an annual 5K (3.1 mile) road race and 1 mile fun run/walk open to any age person.

Proceeds from the event will go to help youth in our local parishes and the Diocesan Youth Scholarship Fund. Each year, more than $10,000 is raised to help youth attend diocesan and national conferences, retreats and leadership-training programs.
